Vivi’s animal instincts are her legacy—and maybe her downfall—in this start to a romantic fantasy series that will appeal to fans of The Nine Lives of Chloe King.

Vivi has known the truth about her family—and herself—since she was thirteen. But that doesn’t mean she’s accepted it. Being Haguari isn’t something she feels she’ll ever accept. How can she feel like anything but a freak knowing that it’s in her genes to turn into a jaguar?

Now eighteen, Vivi’s ready to break away from the traditions of her heritage. But all of that changes with the shocking, devastating deaths of her parents and the mysteries left behind. Vivi discovers family she never even knew she had, and a life open with possibility. New friends, new loyalties, and even romance all lay ahead—but so do dangers unlike anything Vivi ever could have imagined.

Wait...jaguars? So this is about a girl...who can shape-shift into a jaguar? NEEEED. I have been craving any and all things regarding shape-shifters of any sort, and a girl who shape-shifts into a jaguar? A jaguar, people. And I've also heard beyond amazing things about Tiernan's Immortal Beloved trilogy from many friends of mine, so I am even more excited to read Darkest Fear now. But I'm not a fan of how the series name is larger than the book's title on the cover. 

What are you waiting on?

  1. I recently found out about this book and it sounds really good! I've read a few books by the author a long time ago so I'm curious :) Great pick!

    My WW!

  2. That is weird, I would have thought the title was Birthright. I haven't read anything by this author, but the description does sound interesting, I may have to check it out! ~Pam

  3. This looks like an interesting book. I may add it to my TBR list.

    My WOW: http://breathofbooks.blogspot.com/2013/07/waiting-on-wednesday-60-frozen.html

  4. Ohh this sounds interesting. But seriously, what is with the series title being bigger than the book title?!! That irritates me. My pick last week was like that too. Great pick!!

  5. A huge THANK YOU for sharing this book. I'm a fan of Cate Tiernan and this one passed by me, I didn't know she had a new book coming out, let alone that it was about jaguars!

  6. Tiernan is such a popular author! I see her books everywhere and they are usually loved.. I even own a few but haven't read them. I have a problem. BUT MY LATEST PROBLEM is that I want this book like whoa. I am not a fan of that cover (agree wholeheartedly that the title should be larger than the series name -_- ) but I need to read thiiiisss.


  7. Books where characters turn into cats (October Daye, Kate Daniels, Tairen Soul, etc) are second only to dragon shapeshifter books in my heart. I'm obvs SUPER excited about this book.

  8. I'm on the fence about this one. I think I will have to wait and see some reviews before I decide. I tried to read a book by this author recently and I had to DNF. But I also loved another one of her books. I'm really conflicted.

  9. Her eye is so creepy! I tend to dislike covers where someone is staring out at the reader and this one is no exception.
